Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kaplan "I understand that eye health is very important to the quality of one's life, and issues that effect the eye can be very frightening to the patient. This is why I strongly believe in spending as much time as the patient needs to full understand what their problems are, and what the best options are for dealing with their eye concerns. I believe in treating every patient the way I would like to be treated as a patient in a doctor's office, myself."
